Over 70,000 entries of commonly used American English words with multiple misspellings per word based upon their phonetic sound. Brief definitions allow for quick referral to the proper word you wish to use. Extensive cross-referencing allows for words that are either similar in meaning and/or spelling. Is it 'petal' or 'pedal' or 'peddle'? Spanish letters are cross-interpreted with American English spellings as well. Spanish words such as 'jiubili, yubili, llubili' sound like 'jubilee' in American English. Asian vowel sounds such as 'lau, low or loh' closely resemble the word, 'law' in English. Many vowel sound combinations are associated with many other languages and also transposed onto English misspelled words to simplify location of a correctly spelled word.

All available prefixes are defined. Each correctly spelled word lists all potential suffix endings leaving no guesswork as to how to spell the future and past tense of a word. Use this reference tool as a bridge to go from the sound of your word to a standard dictionary if further comprehension is needed.

Proper nouns are listed only if common to everyday communication. Nouns listed; days of the week, months of the year, common medical and legal terms, common plants, animals and other words which may be cross-referenced with a word that may not be a proper noun.
Helpful for English as a First Language (ESL) for 3rd-5th grade, English as a Second Language (ESL) and anyone who is dyslexic, autistic, or has any other learning disability. Also helpful to those who simply want to quickly find the spelling of their word phonetically. For poets seeking rhyming words and synonyms and for those who want to know how suffix endings are spelled out when added to a root word.
